our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
, nancy. jan crawford has been covering the romney campaign. she is in boston tonight. jan? >> well, scott, governor romney just landed here about an hour ago after making campaign stops in that key state of ohio and in pennsylvania. he talked to reporters on the way back on the plane and he said he felt good about this campaign. they hadn't left anything in the locker room and that he thinks they're going to win. he said he just finished his victory speech. he's not written a concession speech. now, the mood inside the campaign tonight, scott, is one of cautious optimism, i'd say. but there is a little bit of nervousness and here's why: campaign sources that i'm talking with tonight say they are encouraged by the high numbers of republican turnout they're seeing in these swing states like ohio, florida, virginia. they believe that will outperform john mccain in 2008. that's the key to this election. they really had to run up the score in those areas. but here's where the nervousness comes in. they're also seeing some of the president's turnout in some of those democratic areas like in nor
they will close in ottawa, montana, and utah. alaska closes at 1:00 a.m. eastern time. we're in boston where the romney headquarters is located. the president and his team is in chicago. we're at the rnc headquarters in washington, d.c. and on capitol hill where the democrats are gathering and all evening we will show you the latest results. these are actual numbers. these are not projections as we track the key house, senate, and gov.'s races as well as the presidential race and you can keep track of all this on our website. this is the only network that gives you a forum to express your views in what is happening with results tonight and you can do so by giving us a phone call. the number is 202-730-triples 32.

states. mitt romney voted this morning near his boston area home with his wife. romney is now heading to ohio and then pennsylvania where he is making last-minute campaign appearances. this was just announced yesterday before heading back to boston this evening. president obama is back home in chicago where he will watch the results come in later this evening. coming up at 7:15, we will have a guide to the key returns today and when we could know the results of the presidential election. >> time 7:01 you heard tori the polls opened moments ago here in california. we have reporters all over the bay area covering today's local, state and national issues. you see the reporters there tara and everybody else we will start with ktvu's at polling place in san jose good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is the register office and they are giving away the i voted stickers here. you can see behind me there areelection workers waiting here for cars to drive on through. they have the setup for pool's convenience and these election workers are greeting the voters and take ballots as they dr
. but this is something to cheer, the people in boston at romney headquarters. >> john, i know you're looking to the screen as well. iowa being projected now for barack obama. >> well, that is a piece of bad news for the romney campaign. again, remember, mitt romney needed to win most of the nine swing states. not just a couple of them. most of them. he's still got to do that. he's not out of the game, but if you take the state of iowa, you got colorado out there, if president obama can hold nevada and the state of colorado, it doesn't matter what happens in any of these other states. he'll be over the finish line. so big challenges, more for president obama, fewer more romney, but he's still in the game. >> waiting on too close to call races which of course have been really critical. ohio being number one. florida, as well. we know now north carolina and, of course, iowa. >> larry, he needs 21 votes. >> yeah. there's a pattern. i mean, let's face it. there's a pattern here. and whether you're romney supporter or not, you got to look at this thing. the pattern spills over into the u.s. senate
is covering this election night. first we'll go to jan crawford in boston with the romney campaign. jan? >> reporter: well, scott, after 17 months of campaigning, that hard fought primary, and then, of course, the bruising general election battle, governor romney and his wife ann cast their votes this morning here in massachusetts. then governor romney was off for a little more campaigning trying to get every possible vote. he went to ohio and pennsylvania. here's what he said when he met with some campaign workers in that must-win state of ohio. >> we f we get folks out to vote we'll have the real change we need in this country and i'm so excited about the prospects. i've got to tell you, i'm buoyed by the spirit of the people across the nation. the enthusiasm, the support, the energy. >> we love you, man! >> thank you. (cheers and applause). >> reporter: that, of course, is the key if they can get their supporters out to vote. campaign sources i'm talking to say they're encouraged by what they're seeing. they have big turnout, their numbers will outperform what john mccain did in 2008
's in boston. j. mart, if you can hear me amid the hoopla here at the newseum. you're a student at virginia, you've been e-mailing me all night about problems you're detecting in virginia. tell us the problems you see and why and what it means. >> the margins in conservative -- [inaudible] in the suburbs around richmond, chesterfield county is the biggest one, comparable to '08. in 2008 john mccain lost the commonwealth of virginia by seven points. the bottom line, barack obama can do a little bit worse across virginia and still win that state. if he wins the state, there's no path to the presidency for mitt romney. we'll get the western suburbs, look at the outer suburbs of northern virginia, the margins are comparable or a little bit better for romney than they were for mccain four years ago. so unless something big happens in the two big jurisdictions still being counted, virginia beach and fairfax up by washington, d.c., i think that the commonwealth of virginia is going to stay blue and give president obama a second term. >> republicans knew that there was trouble there, or has this al

are in boston. he will also campaign in ohio and pennsylvania, a state that hasn't voted for a republican presidential nominee since george bush senior, back in '88. what does that tell you? is that a hail mary backup in case he loses ohio or just worth a try since he's in the neighborhood or does he think he really has a chance? >> it depends on who you ask, anderson. clearly the polls have tightened up in pennsylvania. they took a look at it, when you talk to the folks in the romney campaign they say listen, we have spent the money, we need to spend in all these battleground states that john was talking about. all of our resources that we can put in there are there. we are up on the air as much as we can be. there's no more room for ads on tv in all these battleground states and they took a look at pennsylvania and said first of all, it's right next door to ohio so not like they have to go across the country to go there. plus more than 90% of pennsylvanians will vote on election day. there's no early voting in pennsylvania. absentees, you have to meet a certain criteria so the vast majo

want to start with byron york. byron, good morning to you. in boston we find you there. let's go through this. how did the president's team put together this winning coalition. >> he reassembled the coalition he had in 2008. did extremely well with the groups i had done well with before, women, especially unmarried women, blacks, latinos, a number of groups republicans thought would be discouraged and would drift away from the president, they didn't drift away from the president. going to obama rallies, they were pretty fired up and they showed up on election day. bill: you have been talking to the romney camp. what are they saying about how and where they came up short. >> i ran into romney's entire brain trust. many of them were pointing a finger at hurricane sandy. that romney had momentum in the polls and after that the momentum was broken. and some said that obama had done enormous damage in may, june and july. but there were big issues at stake in this campaign. two different views of governing, higher taxes were more regulation and more spending and the vote terse chose pr
and in boston, massachusetts, brian by this time tomorrow night, we will probably still not know who won but at least we'll be further along the path than we were right now. >> and we have about 20 seconds here, tom. have either campaigns started lining up lawyers in case it's as close as we expect? >> actually and in all seriousness, brian, they have throughout all 50 states, there are challenged lawyers hired by the attorneys, especially in ohio tonight. we can expect to so legal action if that vote tonight gets critical and ohio is the bell weather of deciding the entire thing. >> tom fitzgerald tonight. >>> is it for us on the news edge special, you decide 2012. back here at 10 on the news edge at 11. as always. hope to see you then.
at the boston convention center. i talked to a top campaign aide, he said they were feeling confident. they like what they're seeing in their internal polls. now it's just all about which of these candidates' supporters are most intense and most enthusiastic and how many of them are going to turn out to vote today. >> jan crawford, thank you. president obama made his last campaign stops monday in wisconsin, ohio, and iowa. and after his final rally in des moines, the president spent the night in his hometown of chicago. nancy is there. good morning. >> reporter: the president is waking up in his own townhouse th morning, and unlike governor romney, he is staying put. no campaign stops. he'll play a traditional pickup basketball game with friends and aides, maybe drop by obama campaign headquarters to thank all of his staffers and volunteers. then tonight he will head to this convention center for what he hopes will be a victory party. on a clear, chilly night, president obama joined 20,000 supporters at the same corner in downtown des moines where he opened a small campaign office back in 2007.
in a hotel room with the five boys and the grandchildren and paul ryan also here in boston. he's not in the room with the romneys. he and his wife and his mother who has been on the trail with him, they're staying at another hotel here in boston, not far from here but they're watching the returns come in separately. i have reached out to a couple of sources on the campaign and can tell you the night is not over. these states are very close along the east coast, florida, virginia, as i mentioned earlier, they're not ready to certainly concede anything, but they're also not terribly upbeat about the way the night is unfolding. >> to sharyn alfonsi in wisconsin and she's at a republican event there. sharyn? >> reporter: yeah, i'm at a republican watch party that is not feeling very much like a party. you can feel the air kind of get sucked out of the room, but people are still hanging around. they haven't run for the bar yet. they were initially encouraged, the exit polling showing romney actually beat obama with working class voters but then those other voters, young voters comin

eastern time to concede the race. jan crawford is in boston where the republican nominee spoke to his supporters. >> reporter: governor romney waited about an hour to concede after the state of ohio was called for the president. everyone thought it's over but the romney campaign wanted to see some more of the actual votes from some of those suburbs around cincinnati. they didn't want to give up. when colorado was declared for the president, the campaign knew that was it, romney picked up the phone and called the president. >> this election is over, but our principles endure. i believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide to aesurgent economy and to renewed greatness. >> reporter: a defeated mitt romney was gracious. >> i believe in america. i believe in the people of america. >> reporter: after running for president for 17 months, his campaign came up empty. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. >> reporter: there was clear disappointment as the reality of what could have
york. let's go to boston, why don't we? actually, tennessee, president, we just made a call now. this is a fox news alert. tennessee for the president goes to mitt romney. not a huge surprise to hear at all. mitt romney has been leading in the polls there. volunteer state just did not ve caught in the precincts reporting. now, 13% in. fox news projects mitt romney has won the state of tennessee. back to the electoral votes map, you'll see that it is pretty close. mitt romney with 82. president obama with 78. 270 needed by the end of the night. where do we stand right now? let's get the democratic perspective and go to boston. good evening. how're you? >> good evening. great to be with you tonight. >> something you are probably liking, of the state of florida, where you won by 4% in early voting. what does that tell you about the rest of the night? >> i think we're going to have a great night. florida turning out in a heavily republican areas. we feel very good about the turn out there. if you look at -- at the panhandle, it is through the roof. our data shows florida was trendin
and florida a couple of times before wrapping up in boston. we have heard the closing arguments. it is a vote for obama is the status quo with stagnation. a vote for mitt romney is bold change and prosperity. the president made all kinds of promises to be a bipartisan leader and wasn't able to do that with obamacare with not a single republican vote and he promised to restore the economy, bring down the debt, cut taxes, balance the budget, et cetera, and that hasn't happened. he says if the country is behind him and elects him and if democrats are willing to work with him he can militia it and a slap back from the senate saying if mitter harry reid romney has a fantasy of casting severely conservative agenda he will not get help from senate democrats which echoes what the republicans said when president obama took office and now before mitt romney wins, assuming he would, the democrats are saying they will not help. >>shepard: we used to watch the last three or four days of campaign where the candidates spend their money but they have so much money they can spend all they want and now we watc
. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we look at is the head-to-head number. the last three consecutive polls, excluding the two you mentioned were at 48. that's a sign of vulnerability. obviously you have seven candidates on the ballot. i think those polls that had the plus four, plus five overstated obama's support because they overcounting a strong democratic county, and they had a party differential in those polls of democrats with an 8 point advantage party affiliation. >> so you see romney momentum in ohio? >> i see romney strong enough to be within a point. and that's exactly where the last four polls showed him. >> so the governor has a very, very -- he has a very good chance in ohio. how about florida? >> i don't think so. as we talked
, very well the folks in boston who are running the romney campaign are looking at the numbers and they know it is that much harder to unseat a sitting president when your approval numbers are close to 50% and maybe even above it. >> david, we had the radical governors in a number of states on the republican side who have refused to work with the president and stalled a great deal. in fact, they have attacked public sector workers, some 3 million public sector jobs have been let go in the four years here, especially in the last couple of years there has been a lot of them. what if they had not been let go? what would our economy look like? >> well, we would be in much better shape, ed. you can figure out how much the economy needed stimulus, it is a simple mathematical equation. spending equals income. income equals spending. if one goes down, the other has to go down. when the private sector goes into recession, that's when the government should increase spending. when the private sector is doing well, that's when you cut back on government spending. that's what clinton was do
